Serbian media: the Kremlin launched a large-scale operation in response to US sanctions


While the international community is struggling with the coronavirus infection COVID-19 with great difficulty, Moscow made a very unpleasant surprise for everyone - “launched an avalanche”, which could lead to a global economic downturn, writes the Serbian publication MARS Online.


The publication called its article: “The Collapse of the Global Energy Market: Russia Strikes Back.” They believe that it all started with the words of the head of the Ministry of Energy of Russia Alexander Novak, “who in the style of the famous Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko said“ no ”at the OPEC + session”, i.e. Riyadh tried to agree on a reduction in oil production due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Moscow did not agree with this. The publication believes that the Russian minister could not make such a decision on his own, so Russian President Vladimir Putin is hiding behind his “no”.

More precisely, we observe that the Kremlin launched a large-scale operation in response to US sanctions that are constantly being introduced against Russia. It should be recalled that Vladimir Vladimirovich once said that Russia would reciprocate unfriendly actions, moreover, at that time and in the place that it itself would choose. And this, in all likelihood, is happening right now, when the Russian leader has chosen a sphere in which he is unlikely to lose, namely energy

- writes the publication, noting that "Russia is moving into a violent counterattack."

It is explained that Washington, through its ally, Saudi Arabia, tried to influence the economy Russia, which is heavily dependent on energy exports. However, Riyadh could not stand the confrontation with Moscow.

After this, the publication asks a number of questions: Does the Russian leadership have the capacity (reserves) to continue the “oil war” strategy if the crisis drags on? Is the Russian economy able to withstand this “storm”?

We note from ourselves - possesses. The Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation has already hastened to reassure citizens. He said that the reserves accumulated in the country will last for 6-10 years with oil prices of about $ 30 per barrel.

    It is possible that Russia's refusal to reduce its own oil production will be regarded as interference in the US presidential election.

      Yes, the sea will come up with reasons, if only it would be cheaper to receive resources from others ...

    Do not exaggerate Putin's abilities. Get receipts for utilities, gas, electricity and even gas prices, and make sure I'm right.

      Respect Stalevar, you’re right - Putin will get into a small egg and take as much as is necessary for the survival of Russia, but not the population. The Reporter’s older brother, Military Review (or topwar.ru), published an article, “Oil Hunt. The pursuit of profit as a form of occupation. ” My comment from the article:

      The untouchable (for rights!) Reserve Fund of Norway is so huge that it allows each (!) Citizen to receive $ 170 thousand. per month for 20 years.

      Few other oil-rich states find themselves in such an enviable position. Some of them, including Russia, also have buffer funds to mitigate the effects of the Dutch disease in their economies. But the difference is that Norway treats its foundation as sacred, while Moscow readily plunges into its own when it needs extra money.

      And this is info from the Internet. And I don’t understand the minuses set for you - do you really need to be so blinkered that you cannot understand by the level of your own “struggle_for_existence” that the state-woo spit on people's money.
      From the article above:

      Is the Russian economy able to withstand this “storm”?
      We note from ourselves - possesses. The Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation has already hastened to reassure citizens. He said that the reserves accumulated in the country will last for 6-10 years with oil prices of about $ 30 per barrel.

      It’s only a pity that the Minister of Finance didn’t disclose “enough for anyone” - the country or the people of the country. Because these are “two big or four small differences”.

        Cmonman, even lying on the couch with a laptop, you are too lazy to find something about Norway and the impression is that you just lie on the couch and think up everything that makes you a head. According to your "conclusions", Norway has such a "little egg" that Uncle Sam is sobbing and shaking overseas.
        It is not difficult to multiply 5,3 million by 170 thousand and get an amount equal to almost a TRILLION BUCKS !!! Over the past 10 years, Norway’s GDP averaged 450 billion / year (and TRILLION is THOUSAND BILLION!). How can one manage to accumulate such a small pill - one cmonman knows. And if this little pill is still enough for 20 years, without any income in this little pill, then Uncle Sam is just a dumb sheep, if you still haven’t introduced an additional portion of “democracy” into Norway and haven’t taken this little pill ...

          From Wiki:

          The Global State Pension Fund, also known as the Oil Fund, was created in 1990 to invest the excess revenues of the Norwegian oil sector. He has more than $ 1 trillion of assets., including 1,4% of global stocks and funds, making it the world's largest sovereign wealth fund. In May 2018, it cost about $ 195 thousand for a Norwegian citizen. He also holds real estate and fixed income portfolios. Many companies are excluded by the fund for ethical reasons.

          I was a little mistaken in the unit of measurement - not “per month”, but “per year”.
          If you have Google (I hope it’s not closed yet), then type “Government Pension Fund of Norway”.

    It's time to get off this oil syringe. Agricultural land is. There are bioresources, oil, gas + other mineral resources .... There is forest, there are hydroelectric power stations, nuclear power plants ... But this is taken together when there is nothing, nothing is irrational. The ideas of state ideology and political will in the presence of a team with dual citizenship in the State Duma and the Federation Council of Ministers.

      And here the oil needle. They earn money on everything, including oil. For some reason, the Americans are increasing oil production, and we are advised through liberalists to get off the oil needle. For themselves, clear the markets.

    However, Riyadh could not stand the confrontation with Moscow.

    Where did it come from? It turns out that there are a lot of idiots in Serbia? And in the US, too, the dollar fell?

    Or maybe the ma'am of recent years is applicable to this situation - SHOT RUSSIA HIMSELF IN THE LEG? Time will tell, but only currency is bought up in Russia, and not in the United States queues for the ruble.

    The saying goes:

    A man harnesses for a long time, but he goes fast.

    The Americans and the Western Sixes too believed in their greatness to establish the rules of the game in the form of sanctions and lost their sense of smell and vigilance. Get it! Glory to Putin! GLORY TO RUSSIA!

      Regina, bravo, I'm your fan until the end of my days. That's right, you don’t have to argue who is to blame - it’s known, the time has come, Putin knew what he was doing, that is, he understood that Russia would withstand such a move that the economy would stand, not to mention the armed forces, and yes, he believes to your people, some of those who wrote comments above are not about them.

    Like, another checkmate to America ...

    Well, it started. Yes, such bargains with a pricing policy-mining occur constantly. Moreover, most likely, this is a secret agreement (the Saudis cannot go into the open against the Yankees) with the Saudis to crush the shales. A similar thing has already been done in the late 90s, the beginning of the zero. Along the way, the focus is repeated with the price of the dollar. Already forgotten? A dollar for 100r, everything is gone, it will become more expensive! Grab it while you can! The people broke, the treasury enriched. Putin then said literally -

    This happened by accident, but in the future it will be necessary to repeat it on purpose.

    Hehe-ee ... !!! Now it's time to create savings not on resources, but on the final product .... And technologies !!! Yes, and it’s better to save resources, because they are difficult to replenish .... Interestingly, the Saudis “Patriots” restored, because the time has come to transplant on camels again .... Are they still cheaper than sophisticated wheelbarrows ?!

    I hate whiners and couch strategists, clever people, arguing about what they have no idea. The Internet is a big fence on which everyone who is not lazy writes (these bloggers got divorced like cockroaches). And all with clever hari reason, teach. Everyone would do their own thing. Actors, athletes and other public showmen there too.
    A talk show is already some kind of mess. I have no words. Enough. I do not look and do not advise.
